While quarantined, many students have taken to their Instagram stories, posting bingo cards, motivational quotes and songs they’re listening to. Junior marketing and entrepreneurship major Sam Christie had a different idea. A lover of all sorts of games, Christie started having regular game nights with his friends earlier this semester.

The Student will be releasing my recommendations in weekly installments until the end of the semester. This week, we have true-crime documentaries, fun documentaries and dramas for you.
Compared to mainstream rappers such as Drake, Eminem and Kanye West, Joyner Lucas may not be a household name. He is known for his quick delivery and self-driven lyrics, while also contrasting most of hip-hop’s common topics such as partying, drugs and women. He has garnered a following for the past five years with songs such as “Ross Capicchioni” and “Long Way.” In that time, he has released four mixtapes and featured on many artists’ songs, notably Eminem’s “Lucky You” in 2018.

The Weeknd tweeted, “Let music heal us,” on March 15, just days before his album dropped.
Our managing editor-at-large and news editor have been talking a big game about crafting the perfect “hip-hop, R&B, soul/funk” playlist for months. Now with quarantine granting them more than a few additional hours, they took the time to compile some of their favorites.
News Editor Tim Carlin and Opinion Editor Rebecca Wolff discuss their thoughts on Carrie and Big’s relationship in Sex and the City. This conversation was edited for clarity.

I know what you’re thinking. How is the entertainment editor about to rip celebrity culture a new one? I’m not sure either.
